For the first time since the news of the 2018 WJC Team Canada investigation rocked the hockey community, the London Ontario Police Department addressed the media in a press conference, providing the media and public with further details on the case.

To open the press conference, London Chief of Police Thai Truong confirmed that all five players, including Carter Hart have been charged and officially surrendered to police on January 26. Truong also confirmed that Michael McLeod has been charged with two counts in the investigation.
Truong stated that the five members charged met the victim at a local bar on June 18, 2018 but the case was closed in 2019 due to insufficient evidence. After a thorough review in 2022, the case was reopened and sufficient evidence was found to bring charges upon the players.
